Class began as scheduled at 9:30am in Morrill Hall Room 202. The class roster listed seventeen students, unchanged since the previous class meeting. Thirteen attended.
Discussion asked after student progress on annotated bibliographies before moving into discussion of Malory. Mention was made of the end of the Middle English period and the beginning of the early modern, noting the uncertainty of the division in both linguistic and political terms. The perfidy of Lancelot and the sorrowful tone of Le Morte d'Arthur were also noted.
Attendance was assessed informally; discussion was such that there was not time for a quiz to take place. It is still looming, however; students are advised to keep abreast of reading and review previously assigned texts.
